The Rising Trends in Asthma
Novartis Foundation Symposia, Band 206 1. Aufl.
Asthma is a growing health problem throughout the developed world. This volume presents a critical review of all the possible factors for this rising trend and includes research that has not yet been published in the scientific literature. Discusses the basic biology of asthma and addresses genetic influences. Surveys the epidemiological evidence for the worldwide trends in morbidity and mortality.

The Rising Trends in Asthma Chairman: Stephen T. Holgate 1997 Notwithstanding the significant advances in the understanding of the physiology and biology of asthma, and the parallel development of a wide range of drug therapies, asthma has become progressively more common and more severe in recent decades. It is likely that this stems from social and environmental changes, and suggestions that have been advanced include altered allergen load, outdoor air pollution and dietary factors. Early-life influences and respiratory virus infections may also play crucial roles. This wide-ranging book, containing contributions from international experts in the field, not only includes discussions of the basic biology of asthma, but also addresses genetic influences, surveys the epidemiological evidence for the worldwide trends in morbidity and mortality, and provides a critical review of all the possible factors which may be responsible for the rising trends in asthma.
